mehh, I need mic stands.

I basically have On Stage, Pro line and Carvin stands. They're all falling apart, except for my 1 atlas stand with wheels

I need something solid for drum overheads, condensers and ribbons

I'm thinking Atlas, K&M or AKG.

Any small companies who make great stuff?

I was in that situation a few months ago - spent my money on 15 K&M 210/2 and 210/9 in chrome, as I dont like the look of worn black powder coating - chrome is more durable. They last forever - my oldest K&M is 45 years old - from my father.

Just an FYI, the AKG stands are K&M. You can't go wrong with K&M, so that'd be my recommendation, buy whichever you get a better deal on, the K&M or AKG branded K&M.

Atlas is only good for the iron based stands, not tripods.

I agree that the ones you have are not reliable but I'm pretty sure the prolines have a 3 or 5 year warranty through guitar center.

I would certainly recommend k&m though.

K&M or the Tama stands are also excellent. I prefer K&M for live and Tama in the studio. Never take the Tama stands out live as they have small pieces that tend to go missing. But great in the studio.

I'm looking at the atlas tripod booms with the weighted arms. It's between that and k&m.
